FEAST DELIGHTS AUDIENCE
“A musical group that sounds traditional and modern at the same time . . . each member
of the group brings different predominating strengths. The violinist brought fire,
the cellist a fine phrase-

“...By the time they got to a dramatic and witty percussion extravaganza composed
by David Alderdice himself, coiffures were getting wild, as FEAST pulled out all
the stops... We had plenty of opportunities to see and hear how this group FEAST
can be either down-

What people are saying about F E A S T....
FEAST was certainly the most enthusiastically received group in the history of our event!

Once again, the broadcast of this show proved a huge hit!

The concert was fantastic. I don’t go out much, but when a group this fabulous comes to town I don’t want to miss them… The theater was packed. Feast is a popular chamber music quartet with an electronic twist. They dazzled us, took us on a world journey and a wild ride, seduced us with samba, performed Enescu and Freddy Mercury with flawless technical finesse and unbridled delight. The audience both laughed and sat rapt, leapt to their feet more than once for a standing ovation. Their music defies description, other than to say it moves people to leap out of their seats when it’s over and beg for more. It moves people. It makes us laugh and catch our breath. This group has ties to our town and plays there a couple of times a year. Their reputation is growing around the west, and locally it was a sold out standing room only show…
What a fantastic FEAST concert tonight!! It was awesome!!!! Our young friend and his mother really enjoyed it! Thanks for a wonderful evening.

My name is Kathy Leary. My husband, Rich and I were fortunate enough to attend both your performances at Arrowhead this year. I’m sure the ecstatic reception you received showed you how amazing we found your performance last evening. I just thought you might enjoy hearing from one of the individuals from your audience. Speaking as a former performer (albeit many moons ago) I respect and admire your expertise, showmanship and enthusiasm. There are not enough superlatives in my vocabulary to express my appreciation for your many talents and I am not alone in this. Many fellow audience members I spoke with were equally as overwhelmed. We may not be the largest audience you ever play for but I doubt you’ll find a more appreciative one. I am singing your praises to everyone within earshot and hope that some day you’ll achieve the even greater recognition you all so richly deserve.
I just wanted to let you know that I was blown away by the latest FEAST concert. The four of you have melded incredibly wonderful and diverse talents into a unique, fresh approach to traditional melodies. I loved every minute and hope that you will have a CD of that concert available soon. Thanks for an amazing evening.
FEAST just keeps getting better and better. I especially loved the World Rhapsody
My husband and I attended your wonderful concert yesterday in Montrose and were thrilled to have been part of the audience. Your performances, the quality and variety of music you presented, the stage presence of Feast, all were world class. We hope to see more of you this year and in the years to come.
Went to the Celtic performance the other night and it was the best performance I've attended in the 5 years I have lived here.........the energy, vitality and collaboration of everyone. It was fun, uplifting and beautiful. I loved the dancers and I so love how you bring amazing talent from all over the world to our little place in the Rockies. I just don't know how you do it as we're a small community. I thought as I left the performance if everyone just focused on what they were passionate about it certainly would be a beautiful world. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to what you love and filling us with the joy that your music brings.
In sincere gratitude,
